    They don't put you on probation unless there has been a conviction of some sort. Pleading guilty or no contest is a conviction. Something is missing in your story.

    The letters are called contract codes. I do not know what is what now as the codes changed within the past six-months or so. Poolees for active duty cannot pick their specific MOS, only an MOS...

    Yes, you should tell the recruiter that you think you have eczema. Never lie. Then you should go to a dermatologist and find out for certain. Eczema is a disqualifying condition, and the military...

    Before leaving for boot camp, you would have to pass the Initial Strength Test (IST), which consists of pullups, crunches, and a 1-1/2 mile run. You don't have to pass this test to enlist into the...

    If I remember correctly from my Ex's days in ROTC, those texts were issued as part of the program and had to be returned. I've never seen ROTC textbooks for sale, which isn't to say one couldn't find...

    No, you can't be in Recon and be colorblind. Regular infantry, yes, but not Recon.

    This is news to us in Florida. I live an hour away from Sanford, so I'm sure the local news would have picked up on such an indictment. Plus, how could they indict her before the trial verdict came...

    Your profile is a little thin. You might want to fix that.

    Anything is possible. Have you talked to your command about a transfer or a FAP slot? Nobody here can do that for you. Remember too, the...

    I counsel patience, young Padawan. BUMED works at their own pace and Congresscritters scare them not.

    Don't worry, be happy. At about the 10-minute point in boot camp you'll be a pro at answering properly. Otherwise you'll be rode hard and put away wet (and sandy). Either way, you'll be fine.

    From where I sit, you've probably waited too long to enlist whether active or reserves. The paperwork and waiver alone will take two-months.

    Have you talked to a Marine recruiter at all?

    It is too hard to say from here whether or not you'll get an OCS drop waiver. I'm not confident you will as the powers-that-be were extremely upset over that land-nav fiasco. In fact, the CO of OCS...
